I had a request to do some plastic bases for DBX style games so I made up a sprue;

10 of each common size per pack, for 30 bases total. I hope they serve the purpose if you need bases.

Yes they can determine the price each at the site. But I would suggest that you put the per base price on here.

I did go to the site. Interesting products.

You might want to think about an uneven distribution of the base sizes on the sprue. Some get used more than others.

Ditto to Doug. These are very nice, but you need to make sets of each size. 40mm square is rare -- Elephants and Artillery, 30mm deep are for Cavalry, Knights, Light Horse and Hordes. 20mm deep are for Psiloi, Auxilia, Warbands, Bows and a few others, 15mm Deep for heavy infantry--Blades, Spears, and Pike.

I really like the idea, but would not do heterogeneous sprues, because of wastage.

What he said. If I need 30 40x15 bases then that's what I need. I don't want a load of extra bases that I may or may not use at some point in the future.
Like some of the other items you have on offer though. Very nice sculpting and price.

These look great actually. Are they the same height and style as your 40mm square bases? I too would prefer packs of just one size base, but I'll probably buy some as currently offered anyway.
